New Lenovo 5G laptop coming to EE in the UK
EE says Lenovo’s new Yoga 5G convertible laptop will be launched exclusively on its mobile network in the UK.
The Lenovo Yoga 5G (known in some markets as the Lenovo Flex 5G) is described by its manufacturer as the world’s first 5G PC. It has a 14-inch touch display and runs Windows 10. A battery life of up to 24 hours is promised, thanks to Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 8cx 5G Compute Platform.
5G connectivity is currently available from EE in 80 towns and cities across the UK.
Johnson Jia, Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Consumer Business Segment in Lenovo’s Intelligent Devices Group, said “Lenovo introduced the world’s first 5G laptop to equip the mobile generation with smarter technology for always-on connectivity and computing. The hardware is just the first step. With our strategic partnerships with 5G network carriers such as EE, consumers will now be able to access easier, faster and more secure connectivity seamlessly. As 5G computing holds the power to transform user experiences, we believe it can ultimately disrupt the PC industry for the better.”
Marc Allera, CEO of BT’s Consumer division - the parent company of EE - said “Our customers already enjoy the UK’s best mobile experience, and as leaders in 5G, those with the Lenovo Yoga 5G on EE will be able to make the most from our super-fast, high capacity network. As Lenovo’s exclusive partner in the UK, we will help customers get to grips with what this innovative PC has to offer on the go, whether that’s for work, online gaming, or watching the latest HD movies”.
The Lenovo Yoga 5G laptop will be available later this year on EE pay monthly price plans. These prices haven't been confirmed; SIM-free pricing in North America is expected to be from $1,499 (around £1,200).
